Brian McIver expects the hosts to put it up to his Derry side at Wexford Park on Sunday.

The Oak Leafers travel south for a vital Division Two clash and the Derry boss saw enough in Armagh last Saturday night - as the Model County roared into a 3-1 to 0-1 lead - to know the visitors won't have things all their own way:

"They came to the Athletic Grounds and produced a first-half display which marked them out as a very dangerous opponent," McIver comments in The Irish News.

"They were very unlucky not to win that game, which would have been a great result for them. We are going to Wexford knowing full well that not too many teams get a result there.

"We will have to be prepared. Wexford have been consistently strong for four or five years now and we will be in for a battle."
